If corn used for ethanol happens to contain mycotoxin, the resulting distillers grains will have three times the concentration of mycotoxin than the original corn. As protein and energy become more concentrated during the ethanol-making process, so does the mycotoxin, explains Gerald Poppy, veterinarian with Diamond V. Keep this in mind when investigating any herd-health problems, especially if mycotoxins are suspected.
